1,450 students on scholarship

THE Ministry of Higher Education has awarded scholarships to 1,478 students for the 2017 academic calendar year for various skills training under the Support to Science and Technology Education Project.
Ministry of Higher Education public relations officer Chiselwa Kawanda said the project is an initiative by Government financed through a loan from the African Development Bank.
Ms Kawanda said in a statement yesterday that the project will help increase access to science education through university education and Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training.
“The project, which targets three public universities, five TEVET institutions and one college, will come to an end in 2018,” she said.
